Haylie Stores in Largs is joining the Day-Today chain - and will be creating new jobs, it has been announced.

The Irvine Road shop will still be run by local family Abbie Cox and David Castelvecchi and will now be licensed.

In a message from David and Abbie, they said: "By joining Day-Today we will be able to give better choice, better value, better promotions and a new range of products including beers, wines and spirits.

We will still have available a full selection of plants, compost and gardening sundries.

"We are looking forward to launching our new online ordering and delivery service for groceries and hot food in the coming weeks.

These changes will allow us to create job opportunities."

Work will commence in the shop this week.

Abbie added: "We will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum. We thank you for your patience and understanding while we carry out our changes😃

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everybody for their continued support. TeamHaylie is very excited about the future. We are very proud to serve our local community. We love getting involved with local events, fundraising and special causes"
